As the municipality marks its 8th Car-Free Day on February 5, many residents ditch their cars and Dubai municipality officials ride the metro.
Through the initiative, launched in 2010, the civic body urges officials and employees of government and private sectors to swap their cars for different modes of public transport to get to work for a day, in an attempt to reduce carbon emission and environmental pollution.
